and the Woman, by Helen McLean, I
was encouraged by the way Bonnard described
work. The expectations were so different
100 years ago. The entire idea of instant results
had not materialized in any aspect of life.
That reality I think gave artists a degree of
peace that we don't have today if a painting
takes weeks, or months to complete. It would
never have occurred to artists a century ago to
worry about producing work in a day.
All this is what I've been thinking about as I
continue to work on this painting. It is almost,
almost done. But perhaps at least another day in
the making -- and I think I've decided to be fine
Have a taking-your-own-sweet-time day.
